In mid-December, e-Travel Alerts—a service that sends multiple daily alerts to travelers all around the world and that TripInsurance.com offers free to our customers and others—announced some very intriguing 12-month totals. In the period between November 30, 2012 and November 30, 2013, the service sent out 1,864 Warnings, 14,056 Cautions, 2,046 Information Alerts, and 5 Disaster Alerts—a total of 17,971 Alerts—to its thousands of users worldwide.

Part of our mission at TripInsurance.com has always been to do everything we can to help our customers travel the world over with absolute confidence—not just about their insurance coverage but about every aspect of travel. That’s why—when we first heard of e-Travel Alerts a few years ago—we jumped at the chance to offer free it with every policy we sell. We still do this, of course, but in 2013, we took the additional step of offering these alerts to everyone who was interested in receiving them.

Exactly what are e-Travel Alerts? Basically, they’re up-to-the-minute online notifications of any developments occurring anywhere in the world that may affect personal travel plans. These developments can range from something as minor as flight delays at a specific airport to things as serious as outbreaks of violence or natural disasters in areas of the world travelers might be headed. Often, such developments are not reported in the other news or information sources we normally access, so, in these cases, e-Travel Alerts are extremely valuable.
